Oakvale Area Outeach Team (OAOT)

The Oakvale Area Outreach Team began as a chapter of Harmony’s Kids of West Virginia, a youth program under Harmony for Hope, Inc.

Over time, it grew into a subsidiary organization, broadening its scope to address diverse community needs while maintaining its focus on youth empowerment through music, art.

About Us

The OAOT traces its roots back to Harmony’s Kids of West Virginia, a youth-focused arts & heritage education program established by H4H.

History and Background

Recognizing the need to extend its reach to underserved areas, Harmony for Hope launched a new Harmony’s Kids chapter in Oakvale under the leadership of Debra June Williby-Walker, who now serves as the Executive Director of the Oakvale Area Outreach Team.

Evolution from Harmony's Kids

As the Oakvale chapter of Harmony’s Kids gained momentum, it became evident that the community had a broader range of needs beyond music education. In response, the chapter evolved into the Oakvale Area Outreach Team, a subsidiary organization within the Harmony for Hope umbrella. While still maintaining its core focus on youth empowerment through the arts, the team expanded its mission to encompass various community development initiatives and social support services.
